NW has been a big picture of futility since their only 3-game winning streak in the '30s. Ara Parseghian did manage two in a row in the early '60s, but even with that, Woody was 3-2 against him there. Most recently, every time NW looks like they could get respectable, the Bucks have cut 'em down & put them back in the pack. In 2013, they opened 4-0, and all the talk was about how this was the Bucks' first test. BANG! And then their season tanked. I'd be willing to bet that Fitz just keeps thinking, "here we go again..." When he played (93-96) NW was 0-2 (93/4). '95/6, NW won the Big Ten, but we didn't play. We was the LB coach in 04, and has lost all six as HC,including the CCG last year. It's in his head, and he may never make that step...(and I'll drink to that!)
Hey, thanks....appreciate the response.
Who is the photo of that leads off this piece? The guy who played JV Golf?

IOW, so what? He's an idiot.
Days today two day to do list?
Days day two to do list for today?
(If it made you smile, my job here today is done) :)
In other words, stay alert? :)
Kyle, you started on 6/3 with FAU, & Cinci on 6/10...is there a reason to skip Indy & Miami? Is there an order sequence I'm missing not seeing?
LOL...gonna take some getting used to ... saw the picture at the top, and wondered WTH Terry Bradshaw was doing in Columbus... :)
Luck - When Opportunity meets Preparation...
Quite a group to follow into the NoFunLeague...
MJ with 10 years,CC with 16, TG with 12, and DB only 8 because of his 'roids problems...I'm sure he'll be comfortable with his earnings.
Similar to the Eagles' "Hell Freezes Over" tour, MissedAgain might get a second chance at the USCar Gamecocks in a bowl game...
Hang on, hang on...I've got the list down to 20 now, this last cut will take a bit of heavier thinking...
So...is this Karen Higdon guaranteeing a W on the football squad or the cheerleading squad?
THANK YOU...I was going to ask if we hadn't sent anyone to East Lansing last weekend...C&Ping this and keeping it in my Buckeye Football 2018 Folder has become part of my Tuesday night/Wednesday morning routine... :)
Yep...Rex Ryan...the FORMER coach and current BSPiN talking head...
Tell him he needs to call Kirk Barton...who has a message for him.
I feel for Snell...but there was recently a story about another kid who wanted to be a Buckeye, and is a preferred walk on. That route was open to 'little benny' as well. IF he proved to be good enough, by now, he be on Scholly as well.
Something about PeeSUe that draws out the best in our DL...don't have to remember back too far to Joey Bosa's Walk off Sack....
OK, thanks...had got used to seeing his addition in the comments section.
I've been missing Matt Gutrudge's additions to the number countdown...what's up with that?
"Digging Deeper" says:
"When Ohio State fans think of the No. 36, Chris Spielman immediately comes to mind. However, Spielman was the last of three great Buckeye linebackers to wear the No. 36 consecutively between the years 1975 and 1987. Today's article will feature Tom Cousineau, Marcus Marek and Chris Spielman.
The play of these linebackers wearing the No. 36 helped solidify Ohio State as “Linebacker University”. Cousineau, Marek and Spielman hold many Ohio State records and terrorized opposing offenses. Imagine the havoc and destruction they would have caused if they played for Ohio State at the same time."
...and before Cousineau, Bruce Elia was no slouch from '72-74...
I agree with you. It seems to me he doesn't have the instincts on pass defense. I have the same misgivings I had a few years ago with Orhian Johnson. Again, I HOPE the new coaches say it in a different way that sinks in, and he's a All America selection & 1st round draft pick...but I'm not gonna hold my breath.
Luckily for some people, not everyone believed that, and the Founding Fathers were smart enough to write it down so things could change...
You'll note above, and on the Jersey Listings on OSU's official site, that Chic Harley is not listed as a player who wore #47...even though that jersey was retired in his honor. Strange, isn't it?
Note - Liam McCullough has worn #49, not 48.
